Default Iodophor dilution

I know this has been asked before, but what is the correct dilution of Iophodor for botle sanitizing? My wife got me a bottling tree for my B'day and I'm ready to bottle with it. Do I need to keep my hands out of the solution?

One capful is equal to 1/4 ounce, which when added to 2.5 gallons is the recommended 12.5 PPM no-rinse concentration.

Very good page on Iodophor...

Thanks for the quick reply and link. Brewing a new batch and bottling another on my day off.

And there is finally enough snow for wort cooling

I use one tablespoon to 5 gallons. It's the same dilution but I find it easier to measure.

I use small plastic measuring cups, available at hobby shops, that have graduations down to 1/8 ounce. Great for making up smaller amounts of sanitizer etc.
